WebFOCUS allows users to access information securely from anywhere using preexisting, single sign-on capabilities. WebFOCUS also offers security integration for both third-party and custom systems, including seamless integration with IBM/Tivoli Access Manager, Netegrity SiteMinder, and RSA ClearTrust as well as a security plug-in that provides built-in support for Active Directory, LDAP, WebFOCUS Reporting Server, and relational database systems.

OWASP-Certified and More

Information Builders meets the security requirements of federal, public, and customer-facing web-based applications. We participate in Information Assurance certifications to provide a superset of security integration, emphasizing strategic risk management and defense against malicious hacker attacks. We are also a member of the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP), for which WebFOCUS has achieved Application Security Verification Level 3 certification in an independent security audit. WebFOCUS is also third-party certified 508-compliant.

WebFOCUS provides security and protection on many levels – system, application, database, and field-value:

  • Application access security – Within the WebFOCUS environment, administrators can manage and define user access according to user groups, departments, or roles
  • Data access security – Access to information can be restricted down to the data-value level so that WebFOCUS users will see only the information they need to see; this not only lets you protect sensitive information, but it allows you to streamline the reporting environment for many users and make reports easier and quicker to read
  • External security – WebFOCUS fully supports external security systems and authentication schemes, including operating system and database management security, as well as extended security packages such as LDAP, ADS, SecureWay, Entrust, and VeriSign

WebFOCUS provides a flexible security infrastructure that integrates and leverages existing sub-systems, including operating system, DBMS, and web-level security. We also provide application-level security and support custom security implementations.
